Our mess kits were inspired by Japanese minimalism. We wanted you to be able to pack light while still packing the necessities. Our mess kit is compact and portable, making sure everything fits inside itself just like origami. The ultimate goal of our mess kit design is comprised of three parts: simple, efficient, and economic.

In Japanese culture, outdoor-cooking is often seen as a relaxing experience that helps with spiritual liberation. With the help of Japanese outdoor enthusiast Jun Kichibee, in just 2 years we were finally able to accomplish a set of minimal mess kits for now and the future.

The Hex Non-stick Frying Pan is made of hard-anodized aluminum and coated with a non-stick layer.

Because of its width and depth, its cooking possibilities are limitless.

*When cooking, pans are better than pots because their structure releases internal pressure, which eliminates excessive spilling from the pan.

 The detachable and extendable spork is made from nylon 6-6, which prevents the non-stick layer of the frying pan from scratching and withstands high temperatures, and platinum-grade silicone rubber.

Its ergonomic design with robust strength offers three levels of adjustment, so it’s useful in many scenarios. You have the ability to cook with it, as well as eat or serve with it.

Since ancient times, the Japanese have used Japanese Cypress to build temples and other landmarks that have lasted thousands of years, which is exactly what we use for our durable wooden spatula. The Japanese Cypress spatula has the highest density and rigidity, yet it’s super lightweight. Use it to cut and serve your food. It can also be used as a mini cutting board for chopping different ingredients like herbs, fruits, vegetables, etc.

We are co-operating with an experienced wood utensil maker in Kyoto, Japan in order to bring the traditional Japanese wood craftsmanship to outdoor gear design.

 The Hex Solo 6-in-1 kit comes with a single nesting bowl, while the 9-in-1 kit comes with 2 bowls and the Jumbo kit comes with 4 bowls. It is BPA free and made from polypropylene.

The nesting bowl can be used as a pan cover, a serving bowl, and even a prep bowl.

The collapsible cup is made from platinum-grade silicone rubber and polypropylene, which makes it easy to grip.

It’s double heat insulated design keeps your coffee or tea hot and prevents hot liquids from burning your hands.

The cup is collapsible, but also extremely sturdy and durable.

 The high-density elastic bands are made from polyester and rubber to ensure your kit stays together in your pack and help you keep track of your mess kit items.

The prep box is BPA free and made from polypropylene.

While the prep box’s main purpose is to store food, it can be used for so many different things like holding your condiments or extra utensils.

                                      
 

We turned to Kickstarter because we saw ourselves on the leading edge of a way to help the modern traveler pack less. We believe Hex Solo will help people pack the necessities so they can enjoy gourmet meals on the go. The funds raised during this campaign will help us place initial orders with our manufacturer. Every dollar counts towards creating the ultimate, modern mess kit.

We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make Hex Solo a reality. We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t give a dollar or purchase Hex Solo, if you’re a supporter of Hex Solo, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!  

Risks and challenges

Having 15 yrs of experience in product development and mass production for America, Europe, and the Japan customers. We realize deeply the importance of fulfilling a promise to the customers. It is crucial that if we fail our customers, we fail our credibility.

Before the launch of this campaign, we already have some of the mass production molds ready(The Bowl, The Non-stick pan, the Spork). We need your help to secure the 1st production which requires at least 1000 sets.

After this campaign whether it will succeed or fail. We will not stop right there. We will go ahead to kick-start the development of the HexPot and the Hex Grill! That is our permanent goal to accomplish a complete set of minimal mess kit like a portable kitchen!
